Wrong Continent.......lol

I stumbled upon this app while using my iPad.
Seems to be an American forum although I didn't realise until after signing up.

I'm in England and ride a Yamaha XJR1300sp in red and black plus a sweet Vespa GTV 250 in Portofino green.
I love riding both for very different reasons.

I traded a Bandit 600 in against the XJR as it just needed thrashing too much.

The gold FZS600 was brilliant!

The Portofino does 80mph. 😏

I've been to Duxford many times ( live about 25 miles away), love it.

She's a heavy beast to push about but well balanced when thrashing her about mate. Plenty of smiles per mile!

That's a beastly scooter...

Theory is when you know everything, but nothing works. Practice is when everything works but you don't know why. In my shop theory and practice are combined, nothing works and I don't know why.

Yamaha makes them. I learned how to "ride" on two wheels on a 50cc with a 70cc kit upgrade Zuma. They make them in 50cc and 150cc.
